Base for rally bike - KTM 690E or KTM 450EXC ?


I plan to build up a bike for amateur rallies such as the Tuareg Rally ( or the Sahara Masters Rally ( I like KTMs, so the base bike got to be a KTM. I'm interested in experiences with the KTM690E and KTM 450/530EXC as rally bikes. For both models there are multiple options for rally kits.

I own a KTM690E which I like a lot. The only concern I have is that it might be too heavy to ride in dunes for a long time, especially with extra fuel tanks. Some stages are 50+ miles across dunes made of soft sand.

So, has anyone raced the 690 and/or the 450 in a rally ? What are the advantages / disadvantages of each ? Any hints are appreciated.
